For someone who is always on the look out to cut down on carbs (ahem, me.) this is the best thing that has happened to me! And it's been here forever! Just happy to be realizing this now!
So for all you beautiful vegans out there, this can totally be vegan. But I wasn't feeling it that way, for myself. But seriously. This can be made identical - and taste, look, feel, the same- made vegan. trust!
But heres my non vegan, vegetarian version! It is DELICIOUS. So proud of myself :) Patience can take you a long way! ;)
For the crust :
1/2 of a cauliflower (pulsed in a food processor)
1 cup mozzarella (or daiya cheeze)
1 flax seed egg (1 tbsp flax seeds with 3 tbsp water)
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp cayenne pepper
pinch of paprika
garlic powder ( or 1 real minced clove of garlic)
* I added 1/4 cup of cornmeal (This is optional- not neccessary. I just love 'cornmeal crust' pizzas)
* Preheated oven at 400 degrees
Spread crust into square, or circle, or personal pan shapes, etc.
Cook crust for 30 minutes at 400.
Then.... add the toppings- Take out and add your fixings ;)
*Now for my toppings. -I chopped up what I had in the fridge
Trader Joe's Tomato Basil Marinara sauce (spread lightly and evenly on the precooked crust)
Chopped red onions, bell peppers, spinach and mushroom
sprinkled goat cheese on top.
*Cook for 5 more minutes on broil.
I liked my pizza best once it sat for about 15 minutes. When its still hot it will be very crumbly and fall apart. Don't eat right away. I'd suggest letting it sit for about 15-20 minutes. You'll be surprised! It stays together finally! Just like a real pizza! Have patience and it will come out great!
